Behind the scenes Edit
The title of these
publications is a reference to . Specifically the Fallout unmarked quest Blackmail Iguana Bob. The quest starts with Doc Morbid in Junktown, goes through Iguana Bob Frazier in the Hub, and ends with the aforementioned blackmail back in Junktown. Wherein the Vault Dweller discovered that Doc Morbid had been supplying pieces of human meat that were being sold as iguana bits.
↑ While the title may suggest otherwise, the book is commonly found in sealed areas (
Vault 92, National Guard depot) where it could not conceivably be placed by wastelanders. The standard of quality, as well as presence of the book in the pre-War slideshow in the menu are also clues hinting at the pre-War origin of the book.
